Submission + - Xterasys GPL Violation Lawsuit Settled (

I Don't Believe in Imaginary Property writes: "Xterasys has settled the GPL breech lawsuit brought by the BusyBox developers. In short, they've agreed to comply with the GPL, notify all previous customers as to where they can get source code, appoint an "Open Source Compliance Officer," and to pay undisclosed damages to the plaintiffs. Once the SFLC verifies their compliance with these terms, their right to distribute BusyBox under the GPL's terms will be reinstated."
